Snatches of a Psalm

“How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty!  My soul yearns, even faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.”

“Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar…”

“Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.”

“Hear my prayer…look with favor on your anointed one.”

“Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere…”

“O LORD Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.”

–Psalm 84

What an amazing provision God’s word is to my soul!  I have found that though many times trusting the Lord hurts, what steadies my heart is the truth of His word.  How good He is!  Tonight I am reminded of the sweetness of His presence.  He is with me, I know that full well.  And with Him as my strength I can endure all things, looking towards my true Home–  Heaven, where I will one day at last see Jesus.

You put a fire
Deep within my bones to go
And take Your Name to those
Who have never known

The enemy has made me weak
I’m wavering
But I was made for this
So I’ll keep fighting

O God help me not be moved

Running towards my God
I will not forsake the call
He is my strength and song
So rejoice, O my soul

There’s nowhere I can go
To run away from You
I am afraid but I won’t hide
I’ll run to You

I must take this love I’ve found
To the suffering
The fear of death can’t keep me here
When the lost are perishing

O God help me not be moved
Give me strength in You

Running towards my God
I will not forsake the call
He is my strength and song
So rejoice, O my soul

We have this promise
The dark will be overcome
And our God will be with us
Till the day He takes us Home

So do not fear
Do not fear
Rejoice O my soul
And follow the call
